Still Clicking Away

Things have been busy here so I have been rather quiet on the blogging front, we have been lucky with fantastic weather so we have been here, there and everywhere, but the needles have been clicking.

We took a trip to Glastonbury a few weeks ago, I sat at the bottom of the Tor knitting while my tribe climbed up it with some friends we bumped into. With the odd knit here and there and some work on my WIP’s (work in progress) I have kept clicking.

New Forest Fairy Festival 2016

we had another lovely weekend at The New Forest Fairy Festival, lots of fun learning new skills with Gypsy Pyskeys, meeting great fairy’s and elfs, basking in the sun, and so much more, just the right spot to be in on such a lovely weekend

Most of our outfits were made by Peregrine’s Nest, …little fae fairy dress, skirt, trousers and yes that tail…

Colourful May Knit – Pictures So Far!

I have been sharing my colourful knit I was working on during may, this is my own pattern though there are lots of similar ones out there.

I have nearly finished this it needs blocking then is ready to go, I love this because it is easy to get on and off, with my EDS I often struggle to get cardigans on, but this is easier with the low mobility I have.

I will defiantly be making more of these, I loved making it and while knitting I was thinking of the different colour combinations I would use, I would love to knit these for people as I enjoyed it so much!

I think i will call them ‘Festival Waistcoats’ or something similar.

This one will be for 3 wishes faery fest in a few weeks

and the back, I realise now that maybe I should have moved the hair!?

Cheshire Cat Outfit

As you may know by now every year we go to 3 wishes faery festival to celebrate summer solstice, last year I made Peregrine a Cheshire cat outfit apart from the ears all items were worked in the round with a different amount of stitches.

I used some lovely fluffy yarn (stylecraft eskimo)

I made a tail

What Does One Wear To The 3 Wishes Faery Fest

We have been getting prepared for (Karen Kay’s) 3 wishes faery fest here and some conversations have been had as to what you wear to a faery fest!?

Well it is pretty obvious to say a faery outfit! But also pretty much anything!

3 wishes often has a theme for the weekend, mermaids, Alice in wonderland, mythical creatures, pixies, pirates, polka dots… you can dress to the theme, dress as a faery, or however you want. Some people are mermaids all weekend and some are pirates all weekend, some people dress to the theme all the time, some do as they wish…. you can wear whatever you like whenever you like, I am sure it is Karen’s aim for people to just be who they are!?

So here are a few photos of what we (and others) have worn over the years 😀

Take a good look at the people around the main focus of the picture … it gives you an idea of what people do wear… which, again, is anything!

Some Children’s Knits

As you can imagine it gets a little chilly in the evenings so when we were at the 3 wishes faery feat we wrapped up warmer to listen to the great music in the evenings

Here is a matching set I made,knitted  tunic, leg warmers and arm warmers

These sets are great and can be made in almost any colours and last many seasons just ask me if you have something in mind 😀

Faery Bubbles!

One thing we all love is bubbles right!? My two kids (and us big kids) most certainly do!

Faery’s make the most epic bubbles you will ever see!

Firstly though I would like to say a massive thank you to Jane (and the lovely pirate at her side!) one morning we got up and dressed the children so they could have a run about around the tent while we got ready and sorted things for the day…after a good layer of sun cream we let them out with the faery’s to play in the morning sun….A tent or two away was Jane, a lovely faery with Bubbles! she kept my two pixies amused playing with bubbles while we got ourselves ready!

Jane I really can’t THANK YOU enough, it was such a help!
